Hi – Since reconnecting with my passion for writing and editing, I have been using Corel VideoStudio Pro 5 to familiarise myself with digital editing and brush up on my editing skills. I am now inspired to edit my future short films/documentaries and am considering the Avid Media Composer 7 editing software. I recall that Avid technology was all the rage in Australia in the late 1990’s when the digital revolution arrived and my former TV colleagues loved it. (I am familiar with Final Cut Pro but am not a Mac user; Adobe Premiere seems a bit cumbersome (or at least, it did when I produced my first short film.) If you are an Avid user, would you recommend it? Or are there other alternative broadcast quality editing programs on the market (for Windows)? I have been avidly researching editing software programs (pardon the pun) and am very interested to hear from professional users. Thanks for your help.
